Today I am here to share with you my favorite shoes to wear with a denim dress. You want to look amazing and that means you need great shoes. If you own a denim dress, then you will be looking for chic footwear that can easily give you a great look and compliments your dress, but not overpower it. Of course, if the occasion is an evening party or an important business meeting and you are required to follow strict rules in terms of dressing up, then you might choose sensible heels or pumps, depending on the desired look. However, most often denim dresses come in different styles and shapes, which allow us to wear almost anything!
What shoes do we choose? Here are the top 17 styles to try:
Best Shoes To Wear With Denim Dress
1. Oxfords & Brogues
So your shoe game is kinda on point. You’ve got those sleek, dressy-casual slides you wear to the office, the statement stiletto you break out for work events, and those cute flats that go with everything. But now your go-to denim dress just doesn’t pop like it used to. That’s where oxfords come in.
The style is classic, but the color and fabric play up a look that’s just off-beat enough to be cool. They’re also dressy enough for work, but have just the right amount of casual–so you can wear them with the same denim dress you’ll use to run errands later on.
2. Flat Sandals
Flats sandals look great when matched with denim dresses because they add a casual touch to your outfit. Despite the fact that flats are pretty casual shoes and we can’t jump or run in them comfortably, it’s still a good match for denim dress in terms of casualness and simplicity.
Platforms are very trendy shoes that look good with denim dresses too, especially if you want some volume around your feet. This can help to balance out the proportion of the dress and make the outfit look more stylish and in perfect harmony.
4. Ballet Flats
Ballet flats are a great choice if you need to dress up in an elegant outfit but do not want to wear heels or other types of closed-shoe footwear. Ballet flats come in different colors, shapes an materials so they are a great choice when it comes to choosing a shoe for your denim outfit.
Just make sure that your sneakers coordinate with the style of your dress. If you have a more traditional denim look and want to keep things casual, try white or black sneakers. If you want a fancier look and want people looking at your feet instead of up your dress, try patent leather or nude-colored kicks instead.
Wear slides with your denim dress: It sounds like an unlikely combination. But the cuffed low-slung, inset slide sandal can actually be paired beautifully with a denim dress. They have a hippie look and feel to them, but check out these ways to wear them with your denim frock:
7. Espadrille Wedges
Wedges are very trendy casual shoes and they look great with denim in terms of style, comfort and versatility. Wedges are a very versatile summer shoes, which can be wore with almost anything. You can wear them with jeans, shorts or even skirts. Also they make your legs look longer!
8. Strappy Sandals
There are lots of great shoes you can wear with a denim dress, but for casual and more formal occasions, there’s nothing like a classic strappy sandal. You might not have known this, but the effect of strappy sandals on your feet is comparable to the famous foot massage. This healing reflexology aspect helps our feet release tension and aids in circulation – so if you’re ever feeling tired, go ahead and wear your favorite strappy sandals!
Mules look great with jeans, but you might be intimidated by the thought of wearing a mule with a denim dress. But, actually, it’s quite simple. Choose shoes with straps instead of buckles. Straps work better on dresses and don’t cause the shoe to slip down as easily when you walk. They also make your feet more interesting than shoes with no straps which are just one solid piece of leather or fabric that covers the whole foot. Buckles can get in the way of your feet going through your jeans and don’t look good for this particular outfit combo either so stay away from them!
In addition to being comfortable and making your legs look great, wearing pumps with denim dresses can be fashionable as well. Pumps are usually more formal than flats so they will make your denim dress look more put together which is great if you’re interested in looking nice but also want the comfort of flats or something else that doesn’t have an inch-long heel on it.

13. Western Style Ankle Boots
Wester ankle boots have been a wardrobe staple for decades-women wear them with everything from suits to bell skirts. The key to wearing them comfortably is dressing for their heft and height, and pairing them with the right dress. A denim one is a perfect choice!
